Our heart health-focused practice brings complex life- and health-saving surgeries to patients throughout the greater Hilton Head area. We offer the combination of advanced cardiac and thoracic (lung) surgical services with the skills, experience, quality, technological knowledge, and compassionate care you need.
We recognize that skill and experience are vitally important to each patient who comes to us for care. We also understand that a team approach is essential for all patients, regardless of the complexity of their procedure. We work as a team within our practice, our physician colleagues, and with the staff of Hilton Head Regional Healthcare comprised locally of Coastal Carolina Hospital and Hilton Head Hospital.
Heart and lung surgeries are performed by our board-certified thoracic and cardiac surgeons who make sure the patient has everything they need for a speedy recovery. Our surgeons specialize in diseases of the heart, lungs, and other thoracic (chest) organs, also offering guidance and comprehensive programs to prevent heart disease or further complications.
Thoracic surgery involves surgery of organs between the neck and diaphragm. This area includes organs such as the heart, the lungs, the esophagus, trachea, pleura, mediastinum, the chest wall, and the diaphragm. Thoracic surgery repairs diseased or hurt organs and tissues in the thoracic cavity. General thoracic surgery deals specifically with disorders of the lungs and esophagus. Cardiothoracic surgery also includes disorders of the heart and pericardium.
In terms of heart surgery, discuss your symptoms by setting an appointment with our team so we can help you with the best treatment for your condition. Whether you’re a candidate for coronary artery bypass surgery, minimally invasive cardiac surgery, or need to check for cardiac tumors, our cardiac surgeon has the experience and knowledge to treat various cardiovascular issues.
